Officers were also able to determine that Sharon Butler had returned to the area and confirmed that a couple of arrest warrants were outstanding for her. Officers located Sharon Butler and were able to place her under arrest for the outstanding warrants. Sharon Butler was transported to Wellfleet PD were she was booked and transported to Orleans Court, awaiting arraignment.

This remains an active case and further charges could be filed. People are advised to secure their residence and call the local police upon discovering suspicious activity.
